Thank you for
taking time to consider us as adoptive parents for your child. We can't begin
to imagine how difficult and challenging this time in your life must be. The
path you have chosen truly takes a selfless individual who is full of love and
courage. We would love and take care of your child and provide your child with
a safe, loving home and family. We are open to having a relationship with you
within your level of comfort. Such as sharing pictures, updates, or even visits
if that is what you would desire as we want to respect and honor your wishes.
Your child would grow up in a home knowing how much their Birth Mother loves
them and how much respect and love we have in our hearts for her.
We are so
excited to welcome your baby into our lives. Our home has a large fenced in
yard to play in and there are parks nearby. We love spending time outdoors and
take our black lab mix dog named Gauge for a walk every day. We would take your
child with us on our walks, bike rides, and would also play in the yard. When
the weather isn't as warm out, we would play games inside or even go sledding
or build a snowman if there would be snow on the ground. Our days would conclude with family dinner at
our table and would later be followed by a bedtime story in your child's own
friend introduced us in 2008 and we have been married since the fall of 2010.
We were both shy at first, but once we got to know each other everything
clicked. We found many things we have in common. Our faith, love for travel,
and commitment to our families are just a few of the areas where we found similarities.
We have a goal of traveling to all 50 states and have crossed many off of our
list. Our favorite places so far have been Alaska and Hawaii. We hope to return
to Alaska as there is so much more to see and do there. We look forward to
being able to take your child with us on our tour of America so we can share
these experiences with them.
similarity we found was that both of us wanted to have a family. Adoption has
always been in our hearts as a possible way to start our family. After being
married for four years and having not been blessed with a child naturally, we
decided to pursue adoption. Your child would enrich our lives so much and would
be a true blessing. Your child already has many people who are excited to meet
him or her. Mark comes from a large family and your child would have twenty-four
first cousins and would be the first grandchild in Stephanie's family, so he or
she would have the best of both worlds. One
of our favorite sayings is that 'everything happens for a reason' and we truly
believe that this is what God has called us to do to start our family. We have hearts full of love, a beautiful
home, and wonderful families that would welcome a child with open arms. We look forward to raising a child and
teaching them values such as respect, kindness, and honesty while helping them
enjoy all that life has to offer.
Family is very
important to us and we try to spend as much time with our families as we can.
We go to sporting events, school activities, family birthday's, graduations,
and holidays. We also travel with our families once in awhile. Mark's parents
have traveled with us to the Grand Canyon and parts of Missouri. Stephanie's
family goes on a yearly trip to Missouri. We look forward to having a little
one to take with us and share experiences with.
Mark and Stephanie
